From his first day at Gentle Giant in December of 2003, it was clear that Sarunas Vabalas was a big deal - and that’s not just because of his Giant stature of over 6’8" tall. In addition to his exceptional height and strength, his patience and attention to detail made him a top Crew Chief in New England.
A graduate of the Lithuanian Academy of Physical Education, Sarunas stays very active as a kiteboarder, snowboarder, paddle boarder and basketball player. Outside of moving and sports, Sarunas enjoys traveling, reading, hiking and hanging out at the beach.
The movers at Gentle Giant were excellent- friendly, worked well as a team and accomplished the move quickly. All people involved in making this move were considerate, prepared and so helpful.. I felt cared for all along the way. Thank you for a great move!

We've now used Gentle Giant for two moves and cannot recommend them highly enough. The booking process is professional and thorough, and all costs are highlighted upfront. The movers themselves are excellent - they are all extremely friendly, courteous, and careful. None of our items were damaged in transit (including red wine glasses that I wrapped very poorly!), and we appreciated how they were willing to go the extra mile to make sure every box/item was in exactly the place we wanted it. Both times the teams have been extremely efficient and worked hard to finish the move so that we fell on the lower end of the estimated time budget - no wasted time idling or taking breaks. We tell everyone who is moving to use Gentle Giant - they're the best!

Great crew, reliable, hard workers.
23:36 25 Sep 19
Excellent service. The guys work very fast and assisted in packing things I didn't think would move. You get a lot for your money. Would highly recommend.
15:06 25 Sep 19
Gentle Giant is always great. I have used them more than 10 times and find them to be careful, skilled, efficient, professional and personable every time.
19:08 08 Aug 19
best company ever! don't even think about using another moving company because Gentle Giant is the platinum standard!!!!
14:41 08 Aug 19
These guys gave us a fast, professional and reasonably priced move! Definitely recommend
11:56 07 Aug 19
Even though I submitted a review shortly after the move, I am happy to do it again. This is the BEST moving company I have ever used--and I have made many moves throughout the country. Everything was wrapped securely and handled with the utmost care. The group of three worked smoothly and efficiently. Their senior of the three showed real team-building skill in keeping up team spirit and coordination. I would heartily recommend Gentle Giant to anyone planning a safe, efficient, and reasonably-priced move.
14:18 05 Aug 19
I’ve used Gentle Giant for years and have always had a great experience. I would recommend them highly for their professionalism and attention to detail!

Highly professional, punctual, helpful team---- I had a complex move of furniture from a condo to my own moving truck and these guys did an amazing job of wrapping, moving and securing everything.... no hesitation in hiring again.... Communication was also top-notch prior to the move which is rare in the moving business.

Our heartfelt thanks to Gentle Giant and their amazing teams. They were head and shoulders above the many moving/packing companies we have worked with in the past: they were the most on time (even EARLY!), super-polite, most professional, and THOUGHTFUL movers we have ever worked with!Our special thanks to Dennis Moore who was there on both days (packing day and moving day) and kept track of so many little things to make the move easier on us. The way he made sure things were packed made unpacking and settling in so much easier. Seriously, that has NEVER happened before. On moving day, Riley Chapman and Dennis Moore made sure everything went very smoothly. No damage to either property or to any of our goods. Riley and Dennis, while walking past with boxes, would smile at us and ask how WE were doing. Can you imagine that!Communication with the office was great too, from Elizabeth to Dominic to Amandalyn. They were the most responsive office team of any movers we have worked with. And the final bill came in within budget.These are just nice people, doing a great job. We need more businesses like this one.THANK YOU!!!
13:21 29 May 19
They are consistently professional and nice to deal with. The movers are very personable and cooperative.Highly recommend.
18:19 04 May 19
Courteous, friendly, respectful, efficient and accommodating. I highly recommend this company.
00:54 02 May 19
Teresa did a great job coordinating our 2 moves. The crew was fabulous! (Both times) They did a wonderful job and were a lot of fun. They did everything we asked and ask us what more they could. Thanks for a great experience on a very stressful day. Awesome service! The guys were prompt, courteous, careful and had a great attitude. Very well trained and great to work with.Highly recommend!
19:25 06 Mar 19
Gentle Giant exceeded every expectation we had. They did a great job in every aspect of our move, from helping us pack dishes and other fragile items to moving larger furniture items, such as our armoire. Every one of our belongings was moved with care, and the team was great to work with. We couldn't be more impressed with Gentle Giant!
17:57 27 Nov 18
All six were ery hardworking men, who put their thoughtful heads together to move efficiently. It was not an easy move, involved working with a crane, removing window frames and lowering heavy antiques, which would not go down the stairs, down three flights safely. Nothing was broken or scratched. Would definitely recommend them. You get an hour's value and they do just charge for the hours, as stated.
21:09 08 Sep 18
These are great people that care about what they do. From estimate to completion well done. There was damage to a piece which they helped expedite the claim.
17:58 02 Nov 17
5 Star Review. From the first day we met Franz to the last day with Scott, Matt, Dennis, Chris, Steve, Paulo and Richard, the move went smoothly. Dominic and Colm were so helpful over the phone. There were a few times, the crew went out of their way to accommodate our changes in plan. Everyone was neat, pleasant and helpful during such a stressful time. They all stayed calm, cool and collected! The estimate was right on. Crew arrived right on time. All our belongings going to the house arrived safely. The rest to storage and perfectly wrapped! Thank y'all for pleasant experience. I will highly recommend Gentle Giants to friends, neighbors and even strangers! Thank you, John and Nancy Quatromoni.
17:13 02 Nov 17
Five stars for Gentle Giant. On time.....no time wasted..courteous, friendly and helpful workers. Not a single piece of glassware or anything broken. I don't like moving but, if I should need movers again, I will call Ge tile Giant!
20:25 25 Oct 17
Excellent company. Would definitely recommend them to others. The guys were very polite and aimed to please. Great service. Thank you thank youMarianne Bourcier
20:02 18 Oct 17
This was an incredibly positive experience, in an impossibly stressful time! Much thanks to Franz, Jeff, Dennis, Paul, & Justin? for your professionalism, courtesy, and prompt, efficient work on my move! The staff was polite and reassuring throughout the process -This company really GETS it! many thanks, Jeanne

We recently used Gentile Giants for our move. I cannot say enough positive things. I was very concerned as we were moving several antique pieces. Jeffrey and Mike were very professional wrapping all the pieces and transporting them with ease. Beyond the great job with the furniture. There positive attitude and humor made this move more enjoyable than I ever expected!
00:57 02 Oct 17
We had an excellent experience with Gentle Giant with their moving and storage services.
01:17 01 Oct 17
Awesome company! I was on a very tight timeline and GG had me packed and moved in over the course of two days; the actual move took less than 12 hours. Mantas, John, and Tyler were all very professional and treated my goods with utmost care. I am a military spouse and have moved eight times over the last eighteen years. This was by far, the easiest move I have experienced.
01:46 24 Sep 17
Excellent moving company! They were on time, pleasant and treated our furniture like it was their own. Everything was explained as they went along and the final bill was concise and easy to understand. We had a wonderful experience, so we wanted to share the happiness with others. Just hopefully the next time we need them, we can get a booking. ☺ Great job!!! 👍🚚

We had hired Gentle Giant for a second time this week in order to facilitate a family member's move. Our first experience was excellent to say the least, and this move was no different. The lead-up to the move as to clarity, preparation and professionalism was first class. This company executes on its promises. The movers were terrific: courteous, careful and efficient--simply really good people. We would recommend Gentle Giant to anyone! Ron Mondillo
18:46 22 Aug 17
What can I add to all the positive reviews Gentle Giant has received, except to say that they are all true.The booking process with their Moving Consultants could not have been easier, nor could they have been any more accommodating. I had an early morning closing on my house and Carmen was able to get me on the schedule for that afternoon. The movers were of course right on time, and when there was an issue with the 3rd member of the crew, GG arranged for another 2-man crew to join in the move and I was moved in and ready to sleep in my new home in no time at all.So go ahead, take a look at the other moving services out there, but if you want a hassle free, smooth move... look no further.
16:26 21 Jul 17
I needed help unloading a UPack storage unit into a rental truck. Green Giant was very helpful on the phone, and accomodating on schedule. The team they assigned got delayed at the previous job, but a second team was assigned and arrived in the middle of the window time. Great guys, quick and efficient.
13:00 19 Jul 17
The movers showed up on time, moved my items quickly and were very courteous and professional the entire time. This was my second move with Gentle Giant and I would use them again.
16:02 18 Jul 17
Jeff and Mike were very professional, courteous, and worked very well together as a team. I was amazed at how quickly the job was done! I would recommend your company, and this moving team, to everybody!

The worst moving company in Rhode Island. Sure, they are fast but they are too fast and they broke a number of things and they put things back together incorrectly. Then they have the audacity to state that it's my problem and I should deal with it. I did and I got myself a lawyer. They refunded me the amount I paid and compensated me for some of the items damaged. It took months but it was worth the wait. I am now "blacklisted" with them.Avoid at all costs. They hire ex-cons and people who look "threatening".

My husband and I have moved a bunch in the past 5 years, and this is the best moving company that you could possibly want to use. They are efficient, careful, and attentive to everything that you may need. We have moved into historic homes, and they couldn't be more thoughtful with your belongings.
13:13 29 Jun 17
My wife and I have moved three times within the past five years. For each of these moves, we contracted with Gentle Giant. We have had outstanding experience with them for every one of our moves. They're super professional, friendly and most of all take excellent care of your property. Not once have we had any damage of our furniture or homes. Gentle Giant is worth every penny. If you care about keeping your property safe and in one piece, spend the money contracting with Gentle Giant!A big shout out to Whitney Miller, our GG Move Coordinator and the men who were flawless, Jeffrey Eiland, Philip Tessier, Tyler Dunn and Billy Costello! Thank you all for your hard work.Very Satisfied Customer,Ken

This was the second time that we used Gentle Giant to move our office space. We were pleased once again for the experience that we received. Both times they moved us in less time that was quoted and saved us money both times. Their staff is very friendly and truly care about the service they are giving you. They make sure your items are protected during the move and make every effort to place your items exactly where you want them. They even do a walk through at the end to make sure you are happy with everything is and to make sure they have moved everything that has been requested. During this move we had Jeffrey Eiland, Casey Dolan and Cory Ruzzo. They were very professional and truly worked their hardest to get everything moved in a timely manner.We were supposed to have 4 men but they finished up a job before us early so they were able to come to use site early. Despite being short one guy they finished the job early and saved the company money. I would recommend Gentle Giant to anyone and would definitely use them again in the future.
21:54 05 May 17
Personnel in all aspects of the move were professional and accommodating, especially Carmen who assisted in multiple date changes due to town government delays with our CO.

We recently used Gentle Giant for a move from Rhode Island to Massachusetts. This is our fourth move with Gentle Giant and once again they did a totally professional job.Frantz came and did the estimate and was able to project within 5 boxes how many we would need to pack our home. The support team kept us apprised of how everything would work and arrival was exactly as we were told.The "Giants" were friendly as always. They work pretty much non stop and keep their sense of humor through it all, in short , just a great bunch of guys. Everything was protected perfectly , arrived without a scratch and careful attention was given to be sure that everything was placed exactly how we wanted it.We highly recommend Gentle Giant!Sincerely,Anne and Brian D.

I cannot say how pleased I am with these movers. Prior to the move after speaking to other companies, I was about to get some friends together for my 90 yr old grandmothers move. The salesman Peter was a breathe of fresh air and answered all my questions and made me feel at ease hiring his company. He sent me everything in writing, and confirmed the professionalism I received on the phone. On the day of Chris arrived with Mike and Eric and got to work. The guys were in matching uniforms, respectful, friendly, and worked fast, but carefully, wrapping and protecting everything skillfully. There were no damages, and a happy Grandma who hadn't moved in 40 years. They will not be the cheapest, but you get what you pay for, and they are worth every penny.
13:45 28 May 15
The first time I used them, they were super helpful and really nice.I'm using them again and they are always very accommodating and understanding.I recommend them for anyone!
20:02 06 Nov 14
My fiancé and I used GG for an in-house move a few hours ago. I'd been apprehensive about the price because they charge by the hour, but the crew was remarkably fast and efficient. They moved a couch and our entire bedroom (Queen bed+mattresses, dresser w/mirror, nightstand) up a winding staircase to our second floor in under a half hour. My fiancé and I were extremely impressed with how professional and knowledgeable they were. We've had a lot of people in and our of our house in the past week (Cox setup, Jordan's deliveries, Raymour&Flannigans deliveries, Merry Maids cleaners, et cetera) and these guys were by far the nicest and most proficient service we've had yet. We'll definitely be working with GG if we ever need moving services again.

Everything went smoothly from my initial estimate request to the move. The office team was pleasant and attentive to every detail. The moving crew was helpful and efficient, and I ended up paying a bit below the low end of the estimate thanks to them!

We moved in stages and we had the same team leader for both moves and he was a doll! Very professional, communicated well and tactfully educated one of his new team members when he was about to do something or move something in the wrong manner. We have to move out one more time when renovations begin and I will keep my fingers crossed that we have the same gentleman heading up the work.

This was my first time hiring movers and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the services from Gentle Giant. Tyler Hartley, Dan Basler and Jacob Romano were professional, hard working, joyful associates that took great care of our furniture during the move in a timely fashion. They worked as hard as they possible could to ensure nothing happened to any of our belongings and I could not have appreciated it more. I will recommend this company to anyone that is looking to move because I am truly a satisfied customer. Thank you for being a company that stands behind their word!
